In February 2020, Bigfork Montana sales and median prices remained healthy. Following is an overview of the monthly results.
In the month of February 2020, there were 16 residential sales which was exactly the same as the previous month and higher than the same time last year. The year typically starts and ends with lower volumes and increases in Spring. Accordingly, in a few more months, we should see an increase in sales.

Of the homes currently available, 12 are condominiums, 10 are townhouses, three are manufactured homes and the rest are single family homes. In the last twelve months, 265 residential homes sold in Bigfork which means there are more than five months of inventory currently available. This data indicates the Bigfork area is experiencing a relatively balanced market, where neither buyers or sellers have the upper hand. That makes it a good time to both buy and sell.
Median Sales Prices
The median sales price for February 2020 was $337,250 which was 8% higher than the same time last year and 6% lower than January 2020. As mentioned in the last report, prices in Bigfork do tend to change month by month due to the relatively small amount of inventory sold each month and the huge differences in price points and home styles/location.
